In Provincetown and Other Poems, Leo Connellan masterfully depicts the New England landscape while capturing the afflicted spirit of those filled “with wonder / and fear that we are being forever left yearning / malcontent.” In his accessible and characteristic style, Connellan gives empathizes with the impoverished and disparaged, as well as criticizes the roles big industries have in producing adverse circumstances for the region. With its focus on the working class, Provincetown offers a grim and unforgettable look at the place where “Death sings to life . . . where / life style has no code.”
